glad you like your new machine, but there is no reason to take a shot at the BDB

Have a great day.

My apologies I was referring to way back when I wanted to get into espresso and bought an 800 EXSL Breville and it wouldnt make espresso. All I had was their PPF and it was a joke.
I came here and found many were having problems.The people here back at that time steered me in the right direction.That was the context for that remark.
Now I am not a fan of them to this day but I try to stay away from arguing over someones else's stuff. Live and let live is my motto.So with that in mind I
wanted to explain that the Gaggia meant a lot to me because honestly I was getting ready to just quit at that point.

See my review five years ago PLUS I UPDATED THE COMMENT TO INCLUDE THE SPECIFIC BREVILLE
